I always check on my neighbors, but I want to share one of the nicest things a friend just offered to help me with- my hand cramps up on me and I was unable to wash my hair for over a week. I have been in pain and whining and she offered to come over after back to school night and wash my hair. It made me cry ♥️!

I believe I am a good neighbor. I'm always checking on my neighbors on my street not just on each side of my house but up and down the street. If they're ill can I bring you groceries can I fix you some meals?

Our neighbors had their first baby recently and Debbie built a “diaper cake” as a gift for them.  The “cake” contained 40+ newborn swaddler diapers and Catherine and Corbin were very appreciative for such a unique and useful gift.

I sweep up my neighbors stairs and put the garbage cans back once the garbage has been collected.

  1. I sometimes babysit for my neighbor who has three children under 8, and whose military  husband is on temporary duty, so she can run errands or for medical appointments. 

 

I also visit and help a widowed home-bound neighbor by taking out trash and grocery shopping for her.

When any of my neighbors say they’re going to be away for a few days, I park my car in their driveway for a few hours at random times to give the appearance of someone at home. As well as collect packages and to watch as sprinkler system is watering to check for blow outs.

I take up garbage cans and newspapers. Clean snow off their sidewalks and driveways. Rather than throw unwanted items in the garbage I ask nabors if they can use them. Check on the elderly. And anything else I can help them with.
